Wishing upon a star

Do you believe in Walt Disney’s message: ‘When you wish upon a star…anything your heart desires will come to you?’ Using this week’s haiku prompts from RonovanWrites (star & child) I composed two haiku on this theme (the two prompts words are in the second haiku).

Youth’s optimism:
‘If my heart is in my dreams,
they’ll all come true.’

As a child I looked
up to the stars for magic–
It was always here.

Listen to this video for a bolt of Disney magic.  It features Christina Aguilera–apparently she appeared on Mickey Mouse Club episodes in the 90’s.  If you wish, you can follow the tune with the lyrics below.  I actually enjoy the words more than any rendition of the song that I’ve found–the words are enticing and for a moment can wrap you into a feeling of magic.

Christina Aguilera sings ‘When you wish upon a star’ live at Disneyland’s 50th Anniversary (May 4, 2005).

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you.

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do.

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing.

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing.

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Your dreams come true

When you wish upon a star was written by Leigh Harline and Ned Washington for Walt Disney’s 1940 adaptation of Pinocchio.  The song has since become the Walt Disney Co. theme song.
